“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This was one of the best places I stayed in Iceland! The setting is amazing, easy to find and really well set up. Everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable. Bathrooms are a bit small but found that everywhere. Everything was very clean. Wish we could have stayed longer

The cottage itself was very nice and in a beautiful setting. It was cosy and and very close to the beach and you can also do horse riding there. However, the cottage was not very clean at all and the when having shower the whole floor was flooded.
I wouldn't necessarily recommend horse riding there either, the beach itself is wonderful for riding but the staff seemed a little inexperienced and horses were not so very good. But for exploring the area this is a very nice place.

Our family of five had a great two-night stay at Hvoll Cottages. There are two cottages currently at Hvoll, and two more are being built. Each has a separate bedroom with a bunk bed, along with a foldout sofa in the living space. We took the sleeping bag option, bringing our own linens.

The location is close to the Ring Road, but far enough away to seem "isolated", as others have said. This is a perfect home base from which to explore South Iceland, the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, and other areas around Vik. The property itself borders the absolutely beautiful black sand beaches of the Dyrhólaey peninsula, and one can easily walk to the ocean and see for many miles down the beach without any signs of civilization. The farm setting is nice, with many cows and sheep, and the property hosts are quite friendly.

We stayed at four cottages on a trip throughout Iceland and this one was the perfect size for us (2 adults and 3 children).

We slept one night in February in a cottage. the cottage was clean, really cosy and comfortable!
In the morning we woke up with an amazing view on Dyrolaey with a sunrise :)
The cottage isoltaed, so we have a peaceful atmosphere, away from the road.

A great choice if you are staying in this area of Iceland.

Very clean room and nice and warm.

Not alot to do and i would recommend that you shop before you arrive as Vik doesn't have any decent supermarkets.

We stayed here for 2 nights last week, the cottages are in an isolated position near to the coast which gives amazing views, the sunsets were really nice. The cottage is well equipped and clean. There was plenty of space for the 2 of us, having a double bedroom (with extra bunk over it) and a separate lounge (with sofa bed). The shower was surprisingly very powerful and we didn't want to get out after a hike up a snowy volcano! The supermarket in nearby Vik closed at 6pm so we were limited to what food we could get in the petrol station on the first night. The road leading to the cottage is quite rough and was a little bit hard going for our basic car, I would've thought in the snow you would need a 4WD and luckily there is a sign on the main road otherwise we wouldn't have found it! I would very much recommend a stay here! The owner was very helpful.

We spent the first night of our tour at Hvoll near Vik. We were made welcome by the friendly owner who offered her help if we were to need it. The cottages appeared quite new and ours was very comfortable and well fitted out. We had everything we needed, the kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom was a good standard. It was very windy and bitterly cold the night we stayed but we were warm and cosy inside the cottage.

The cottage is located very close to the ring road as is signposted well and is easy to find. It is in a very peaceful setting with great views of the surrounding scenery. Hvoll cottages are a lovely place to stay at a most reasonable price.
